Calling all campers and festival-goers: #CampOut4Calais launched

We need tents – and you should #CampOut4Calais to help us out!

In the last few weeks, we’ve had to replace a lot of tents the French police have destroyed as they move refugees on. We also know that we will not be able to count on discarded tents from UK festivals this year.

We’re asking you to take action now to re-stock the camping gear in the Calais warehouse. Here’s how you can help:

  • Organise a sleepout and set up your fundraising page to raise money for tents or sleeping bags
  • Have a clear-out and send us your old camping gear
  • Send us the tent you bought for a festival that you’re not going to use
  • Get involved with the campaign on social media and let your friends know about #CampOut4Calais
  • Donate! Just £7 buys a sleeping bag, and £14 buys a two-person tent.

We know how desperate the situation gets for refugees when the weather changes later in the year. You can help us make a difference now.

Set up your fundraising page or donate here by visiting the CampOut4Calais wesite here.
